A Bank of America worker pleaded guilty Tuesday to installing malware
on more than 100 ATMs, and stealing $304,000 over a seven-month
Authorities were able to recover at least $167,000 in cash after the
worker told U.S. Secret Service agents where they could find the
money, according to a press release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s
office in North Carolina, where the charges were filed.
Rodney Reed Caverly, 53, pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized
computer access for installing the malware.
Caverly’s attorney told Threat Level that his client wrote the code
himself. It instructed the ATMs to dispense cash without creating a
record of the transactions.
“I have seen some media speculation that this event is somehow related
to an Eastern European computer virus from last year,” defense
attorney Christopher Fialko said in an e-mail. “It is not.”
